Health-conscious are we,
somewhat jaded and slim, but
skimmed makes us leaner
I think this is a haiku, though I don’t personally care for such contrivances. However, given that this very project is a virtual exercise in self-indulgence, I’m willing to take a more relaxed approach. We’ll call it a compromise.
I’ll make another attempt:
Ooh, I worry, as
Coconut might well overwhelm
Poor vanilla so
I fear that coconut and
Vanilla won’t go
Maybe a milkshake
Vanilla the main flavour
A coconut hint?
Aren’t haikus generally self contained entities and never combined into sequence? I’m not sure.
I fear that this has gone terribly wrong. I’ll go back to simple flowing prose next time.

…but she still wasn’t happy. Her success was tainted by the very thing that had plagued her for all this time; indeed it stemmed from it.
How could she delight in such a hollow victory?
She was sure fate was laughing at her and so, after much deliberation, she gave up her esteemed position, turned her back on her accomplishments and enrolled in a convent.
